I would definetly go for C3PO. Not only is he intelligent and interesting, but he is also considerably less annoying than Jar Jar Binks. Granted, C3PO wouldn't be my first choice of companion in a life or death action adventure, since he'd spend most of the time shouting and screaming about how we're all going to die, but on a quiet planet, I'm sure he would come off as just plain old eccentric. And some eccentricity is one of those qualities that I actually appreciate when I'm bored to tears.

You've won me over, Rory. True, I couldn't eat Threepio. But he'd be good enough company on a quiet planet. And he was nice enough in Star Wars (I'm talking about the first movie, A New Hope here) in the scenes where it was just him and Luke ... and maybe Ben and R2 as well.

Yeah, I'll go with Threepio. That's my final answer - lock it in. smile.gif

It's a really tough one because there's a million For and Against arguments ...

- C3PO would provide intelligent company, but there's only so long you can stay sane by just playing clever word games
- Jar Jar, on the other hand, could provide years of fun by kicking the crap out of him on a regular basis

- C3PO would be knowledgeable enough to help with many survival situations
- Jar Jar could be slaughtered and eaten if food ever ran out

- C3PO could be reprogrammed to be far less irritating. You've got all the time in the world to learn how
- Jar Jar could be repeatedly slapped for fun

- I'm not even touching this one with a 40ft pole

I hate go go against the recognized fan favorite but Jar Jar, when it comes to things that can be broken, especially mechanical things, is a killing machine. Jar Jar breaks 3po's motivator in the third round and disassembles him in teh fourth.


I don't know about you but I have never advocated that homosexuals, for any reason, be cut out of their mother's womb and thrown into a bin.
